CPEA 201 - Art of Observation (4 Cr.)


Are you tempted to watch the grass grow or follow the traces of cloud shadows scudding over the earth? Do you hear music in the hubbub of a crowded marketor in passing traffic? Would you like to experience the ocean in a humble puddle? We live in an age of point and shoot immediacy and instantaneous commentary which demands our constant attention. But attention to what, exactly? What if you had time to think more quietly, to look with abandon, to reach conclusions slowly and with deliberation? In this course, we will delve into the differences between looking, seeing and observing and we will immerse ourselves with places, people and ideas over time.Using photography, writing and sound recording and working in groups and individually, we will spend a semester of intense looking and listening. We will use many forms of recording and responding to our observations including working collaboratively on a book that features image and text, playing with image and sound and writing from multiple perspectives. Over the course of the semester, using observation as your foundation, you will develop a project that is connected to your deep interests. Restricted to first-year and sophomore students or others with instructor permission. Burns.
